Malaysian singer and actress Dr Soo Wincci has become the first Miss World Malaysia to be appointed in an academic position and it’s recognized by the Malaysia Book of Records.

Soo, who’s Miss World Malaysia 2008 and holds six different academic degrees in various fields, will be an associate professor at the Faculty of Music of University Teknologi MARA (UiTM) College of Creative Arts.

She posted a series of Instagram posts on Friday, 1 April, of her certificates and announced a few of her upcoming plans.

Based on the certificate from the Malaysia Book of Records, it seems like she’ll be lecturing on Music Business.

Finally, I stepped into the world of professors. I’m now a lecturer teaching students of UiTM Shah Alam in the subject of music production and business. I’ll teach 70 to 80 students, who are all in the B40 group.

Dr Soo Wincci told Berita Harian.

She told Berita Harian that her new responsibility will not interfere with her other commitments.

I’ll only fly to Valencia, Spain, during the semester break or after completing my examinations. I’ll teach a virtually if I’m in another country. I teach almost every day in UiTM, except Saturday and Sunday, so I can focus on my interest as an artist and in production work.

Her list of academic accomplishments

Soo shared that she’s aiming to get 8 doctorates but she only has two now. Her third PhD might be in international law but she doesn’t know which university to pursue the course at.

Her other academic achievements include:

  • Law Degree from the University of Reading
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Sunshine Coast
  • Master’s Degree in Music Production, Technology & Innovation from Berklee College of Music (Valencia campus)
  • Post-Master’s Fellowship in Live Music Production from Berklee College of Music (Valencia campus)
  • PhD in Business Strategy, Branding & Social Media from Open University Malaysia
  • PhD in Artistic Production from Valencia Polytechnic University (UPV)

She was also recognized by the Malaysia Book of Records in 2019 for the most number of academic degrees obtained by a recording artist and beauty queen.

Other achievements

Other than being a beauty with brains, she’s passionate about philanthropy work too. She returned to Malaysia in March this year before flying to Nepal to carry out social responsibility work.

She was offered to be a lecturer on chemical engineering subjects there. She has a foundation in the subject but rejected the offer because she wanted to pursue fields related to law and arts.

The high achiever also produced and composed her 2019 single Cut Away in four languages: English, Malay, Chinese and Spanish.

Soo, the humanitarian icon for Islamic Relief Malaysia (IRM), shared that she missed fasting in Malaysia. It’s her 11th year fasting this year. She also fasted three years ago in Spain.
